Q: Iq vs ix 2000 what is the difference.
by Garry from Michigan on June 28, 2016

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

While both units feature a low oil shutdown, they are fairly different otherwise. To start, the iX2000 features status LEDs, 12VDC outlet, 4.7 hour run time at 25% and an AC rated output of 2,000 watts. Conversely, the iQ2000 portable inverter generator features status indicators, 7.7 hour run time at 25% load, and a 1,600 watt AC rated output. The iQ2000 also features a PowerDial™ for operation, run time display, and PowerBar™ to monitor your unit's output capacity. Moreover, the iQ features a lower sound output, three modes of operation, and is parallel compatible, whereas the iX2000 is not.

The IQ2000 also has a longer warranty.

If you have any other questions please let us know.

Finally, A Competitor
I have owned a Hondo 2000 for about 10 years. I have been disappointed that there seems to be price fixing because the price has stayed at $999 everywhere.

Finally someone, Generac, has come out with a competitor. I bought a 6866 as a gift to my daughter who needed a generator for her living quarters in her horse trailer. She loves it. It runs her ac, tankless water heater, and other loads all at the same time. Ordering was easy and delivery was quicker than expected!

Iq2000 Troubles
Purchased my IQ2000 on April 25th and received it about 5 days later. Didn't open box until the weekend of May 15th. Used it on camping trip and it worked and functioned great. I was satisfied. Next use was Labor Day weekend. All electronic functions were no longer functional and the unit was leaking gas. Returned home and tried to reach Generac where no one would answer the phone.

After hours of effort, finally found someone that did warranty service on Generacs. After driving across town... more

Runs Good Provides Enough Power But Not All Features Work
Before i ordered this product i did a little research and saw that there had been some problems. I figured no big deal i'm sure they got all the bugs out. wrong first time i started it the fuel gauge did not work so the remaining run time does not work either. after looking this problem up i saw that some was told that the wires could be loose on the back of the gauge and were told to remove that panel and sure enough that solved his problem.

So I figured, cool I'll take the panel off... more

Idle Speeds A Little Confusing
I have only used my generator on one camping trip. It did a good job powering my camp. While the gas, time remaining, and load usage features are handy, the three idle settings are confusing. Are they even necessary? Shouldn't the generator determine the power draw and adjust itself accordingly? Seems kind of senseless if it doesn't. None of the owner material addresses this. I am satisfied with the overall function. Two friends, one with a Honda and the other with a Yamaha, were booth... more

First Impression
Arrived a day early and in good shape. I waited a few day to try it out. Put in the oil and gas and it started on the 2nd try. Nice and quiet. Can hardly wait to go camping and use it there. So far, I'm pleased.

Gas Gauge Don't Work
I'm on my 3rd unit now and gas gauge hasn't worked on any of them. Part to fix it was on back order for 4 months . When it finally came in Generac was unable to get a hold of their service dealer that the part was delivered to. They sent me a new generator and has the same problem as the other ones. Starts easy runs good just gas gauge don't work. One of the reasons I bought it was I thought that was a cool feature. Guess I will just have to deal with it not working.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use

Great Generator For The Money
I like it! Great little generator, much less expensive than the Honda, absolutely love the led fuel gauge and the led estimated run time, 3 speed levels low med and turbo low =automatic idle control great on fuel, light & compact I think 49 pounds very quiet I would say equal to Honda my only complaint would be under load it seems to "hunt" for the proper rpm nothing drastic but not a level smooth rpm. overall I like it a lot!!

1st Time Start
The generator was very easy to start and was very quiet like other reviews said. I only run it for a half hour to try it out. I ran an electric chain saw off it for a test. I bought this generator for power outage backups. I feel satisfied with my choice.
I would certainly recommend it to others.

Surprising Fuel Use
Operated, 27cu ft refridgerator - 150 watt pump - 3 100 watt lights - and a small fan using two 100 ft extension cables. Used (normal) middle setting, load indicator read 40%. Unit ran for 9 hours on first tank of gas. But I only had to add 1 Gal for refuel. No ramp up or down of throttle during operation. In all settings it is reasonably quiet as far as generators go but on economy it really is quiet. Fuel use was better than expected starts first pull everytime. Excellent materials and build... more
